Re: Acorn Electron online? Any such hardware.

Not yet, I have just found the errors that probably cause the copy faults. For the first block of data the second error undoes the first error but for the next blocks there is only one error that re-occurs. I'll try to fix them later today. Very exciting, if this makes it to an end user product wil...

I am working on an interface for the Atom to use an ESP8255 wifi module to communicate with the Internet. It's nothing new and some people here have also worked or played with it. My base set up will b...

Is there a modern solution or something like a cable that does it through a PC? Rasp Pi? Just interested...

Does anyone know what the Slogger "Electron R" was, or was it just vapourware that never materialised? http://www.acornelectron.co.uk/mags/eu/ills/6_02/s-p29.jpg I noticed from the advert there is no price, just 'phone/write for details', so maybe they were just fishing for interest?

Never had anything like that on the Electron, but Action Replay conjures up memories of using the Action Replay cartridge on Amiga from Datel Electronics.

The good thing about a magazine is it condenses all the good stuff into one place. i.e. like someone doing the hardwork of finding all the interesting bits and pieces in the forum and condensing into one easy to digest magazine.
